We have received your letter and are all
very well. The grass and some of the trees look very green the roads are very good. There is no snow on Lymington mountains. The fences are all finished and the garden is laid out and planted. Two of the goats are on the island and we keep the other one for her milke the [loss] threatened to kill Louisa without any provocation and has behaved so bad that Mother did not think it safe to keep him and Mr. [Ham?] has got him. I have shot a partridge and a [penhawke?] and caught 18 large trout out of our brooke. I am sorry you intend to send me to school again. Mother days she can hardly spare me We hear nothing of Dr. Brown and expect he is lost in the woods. I hope you will soon recover your health and wish to see you very much. Nath Hathorne
